The Video Performance Evaluation Resource (ViPER) is a toolkit of Java programs and scripts that enables evaluation of video processing algorithms. This includes a markup tool for video, a performance evaluation tool that compares how well result data matches ground truth video metadata, and scripts and systems for running sets of experiments.
Getcontrol is a GNOME 2 multimedia frontend. It aims to play DivX, DVD, MP3, Ogg, and Shoutcast streams,and also provide digital photo viewing, video conferencing, etc., all connected with your remote control and running on your TV out. It relies on Gstreamer for multimedia playback.
Badut is a home theater PC media browser; an audio/video jukebox. It lets you browse your files and play them, with the focus on good LCD/VFD support, pluggable media (e.g. USB), and infrared remote control. How files are played can be configured. Badut comes with a plugin that plays cdrdao audio CD images directly (audio.toc files).
Pkviz is a tool for plotting and cycling through and animating a series of network packets captured by tcpdump. What makes it unique is that the packets’ structure is visualized, not any labels and not time itself. Pkviz takes each byte in a packet and plots it out end-to-end, left-to-right, from the first byte to the last. How high the dot gets plotted depends on the value of the byte: bytes with a value of 0 are at the bottom and those which are 255 (0xff) – the maximum value of a byte – get plotted at the top. This might not be interesting for one packet, but that changes when you start looking at thousands of packets. Pkviz can cycle through thousands of packets in the set so you can see what happened on the wire.
Smitten differs from traditional media centres in three major ways. It contains no media playback at all, which makes it very small (and suitable for porting to embedded systems) and quick to initialize. It targets a TV display and interface, which means there's less information on any particular screen, and a much simpler control interface consisting of left, right, up, down, and select. No mouse is required. It is also highly skinnable, and cross-platform to most systems. Essentially, it provides an easy-to-use menu system that allows the user to navigate a hierarchy of files, and view them using an (external) tool.
